The Do Good Bus was created to bring people together to do charitable work and to help their community. After an 11,000 mile journey around the United States, this bus along with the help of 750 volunteers was able to help 25 different causes! Teamwork and altruism are the heart of this organization and we are proud to be able to bring this experience to our clients as a charitable team building program.
Make an Impact, Give Back Locally
We are proud of our company culture at Teambonding and we understand you’re proud of your culture as well. For each bus ride, we work closely with your team to incorporate your core values and company mission. We build in time to research your company and your employees to find activities that will be best for your group all while giving back.
“I have been working on new programs all year and sometimes one comes along that is so perfect we have to get involved. That is how I see the Do Good Bus. We have many charitable programs, but this is different, this brings us and our clients out into the world, outside the hotel ballroom to really get our hands dirty and do some good. The idea that it can pick up the client at their office, feed them, entertain them, do some good, build their team and bring them back 5 hours later- had to do this.”
During each Do Good Bus event, we have three goals:
AWARENESS – There are hundreds of causes that help our city, our neighbors, and our friends; our mission is to bring visibility and accessibility to these causes.
COMMUNITY – We aim to prove the power of working together with a shared purpose of making a difference.
SOCIAL IMPACT – We hope the Do Good Bus experience will inspire your staff to keep doing good – at work, at home, and in their community.
Each is tailored to serve one of these categories:
EARTH — Working with and/or for the environment. Working with your hands to build, paint, garden, city cleanups, etc.
PEOPLE — Working for a cause benefiting people in general. A soup kitchen, shelters, children, etc.
ANIMALS — Helping the four-legged types. Dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, etc.
An Experience of a Lifetime
Giving back is a natural part of team building while working together for a charitable cause. To make this even more exciting, we suggest keeping it a secret from your team about where you are headed, and what you will be doing. Working side-by-side, your team will forge lasting, authentic connections. Hopping on the Do Good Bus, not only connects your team to the community, but it creates awareness about the local charities around and connects them directly with a cause.
We work together with you to pick a cause that best suits your organization.
Gone are the days when employees were supposed to deliver their duties at their workplace without expecting anything more than remuneration in return. Today, a lot more than simple labor commitment is expected from an employee. They need to connect emotionally and with the organization’s goal. This emotional connection engages employees at their workplaces and ultimately results in improved efficiency and performance. Did you know that 60% of workers would be more productive if they felt happy at work? Studies prove that better-engaged employees bring organizations benefits in the form of higher customer satisfaction levels, improved productivity, and greater profits.
In 2019, Research and Markets forecasted that the online education market will reach $230 billion by 2025, and given the impact of COVID-19, it’s likely that online learning will see even greater growth than previously expected.
No matter your company’s size or industry, your employees are one of your greatest assets. And it’s in your best interest to keep them happy—apart from the ease of a positive work culture, strong team dynamics deepen trust, foster communication, and improve collaboration.
Equally important to remote team productivity and team building is appreciating and celebrating your remote team. How do you celebrate success at work? How do you wish a co-worker a happy birthday? Congratulate them on getting married, or a new addition to the family? Have a night out after work? Working remotely has changed these things and it’s not as easy to celebrate with them, or thank them for their hard work. Thinking outside the box is necessary.
Remote workers have become a valuable asset for many businesses. The ability to cooperate with anyone around the world means that you’ll be able to find great talent than if you would search just locally. You may have found incredible remote employees but do they know that you value them?
Right now, the Coronavirus crisis has impacted all of the core team culture practices that Human Resources and managers have been working to perfect. These are unprecedented times, and it is now more important than ever to shift team-building practices to fit the current climate.
There’s a great deal of focus lately on how to help remote workers maintain productivity. With so many people around the world having abruptly transitioned to work-from-home conditions, this is indeed a pressing concern. However, productivity isn’t the only thing we should be thinking about. Working from home can make for a full-fledged lifestyle change, and can be jarring to employees in a number of ways. Even if they keep working, they might feel somewhat disconnected from their professional lives, and by extension their finances. Given these concerns, we’re going to go over some financial wellness tips that can help remote workers to maintain financial stability and stay on top of this aspect of their lives.

All events are customizable to meet your teams’ needs and boost engagement, communication, and productivity.
During this uncertain and challenging time, it is more important than ever to understand how your employees are doing. Now, as COVID-19 continues to disrupt businesses across the country, it is an optimal time to send internal surveys to employees. Many employees are working remotely for the first time and this may have impacted their productivity and even mental health.
Since our work lives, social lives and even family get-togethers have moved online, you’re probably thinking about effective ways to engage your remote team for non-work related events. Enter: Virtual Team Building.
